This page is dedicated to explain the main features of the game and how to play it.
First runIf you haven't download the game yet, see this page. Otherwise proceed with the instructions.
Every time you start the game you'll be presented with the title screen, where you need to touch the screen to enter the game. You also have a settings button in the left bottom corner.
The first time you start and press the title screen, a window will appear asking for your nickname. Latin letters are compatible, there is no need to type Japanese characters. After typing your name, press the blue button to proceed to the next screen where you can choose a avatar for your profile - later in the game you'll unlock more avatars. After picking your avatar you can choose between 6 cars each from a different manufacturer but with very similar performances.
After doing all those things you are now ready to actually play the game. You'll be instantly presented with a tutorial race where the controls will be explained and the whole concept of "touch-based drifting". Upon finishing the tutorial if you don't choose to repeat, the game will open the home menu, as it will the next times you start the game.
A good way to understand how the game works is by showing it in a hierarchical way:
- The most basic objective of the game is to level up your player.
- To level up your player you need to be able to win races with a good car.
- To have a good car you need to increase its stats by either leveling it up or installing new parts.
- You get parts as rewards from races or orders. These parts can also be upgraded by combining with other parts.
This is a very simple explanation of the game concept. There are some different ways to approach each problem but the game pretty much resolves around this process.
To race, first you must go to the racing menu and select a race. Upon starting a race you'll be presented with a normal loading screen before entering the actual track with your car.
At the beginning of every race you are presented with a cinematic view of both participating cars, along with their battle power. A race can be split into two parts: Race start and the drift sections.
After viewing the participants you'll have the chance to begin the race with a rocket start which is indispensable for any race. You do so by revving your car (press the pedal) until the speedometer blinks. It's crucial to have a rocket start because the opponent is most likely to also have a rocket start, or it will also grant you an advantage over a opponent who so happens to not do it. Upon starting the race you are now on your way to the drift sections of the race.
Drifting is completely automatic, all the player needs to do is press the steering wheel on the bottom right of the screen. To start drifting "press and hold" the steering wheel, and to stop "release".
There are two parts to drifting: the entrance (start of the drift) and exit (end of the drift). At the start and end there are yellow lines. The goal is to press/release the steering wheel right as the front of your car passes the yellow line. The closer you are, the faster your car will go.
On the bottom, in the middle, is a display showing how well your timing was pressing the steering wheel. It will say the following terms, as well as a distance saying how close your timing was.
|Early/Late||> ±2.5m||You pressed too early/late. Press later/earlier next time.|
|Good||±1m ~ ±2.5m||You pressed on time but could be better.|
|Excellent||0 ~ ±1m||You pressed accurately!|
|Spirits||0 ~ ±1m||If you make a 'Excellent' drift, there's a small odd of it becoming a 'Spirits' drift.|
The better your timing, the faster you will drift through the corner and the faster you'll exit and go to the next corner, the exception is the 'Spirits' drift which passively grants a boost to your car even enhancing its performance outside a drift.
Spirits drift will be cancelled once you do a below Excellent drift, being the exception if you consume a Tamashi (Spirit booster) Drink for Time Trial events.
- The best starter cars are the Subaru BRZ or the Mitsubishi FTO.
- Best car for beginning is Honda CR-Z because it consumes the less gas of any other car. It is also useful for events that require twice the fuel to enter such as Boss Battle and King of Kings events
- Auto-sell function isn't recommended in early game as every part is useful to upgrade your weak vehicle.
- Save your nitro bottles for races that really matters.
- Get a free refill everyday by sharing to social networks.
- When upgrading a part, do it with as many parts as you can. For every level your part increases, the cost per part to upgrade will rise exponentially.
- Sell your extra useless cars for tokens or coins.
- Don't forget to use your extra fuel cans, however save a few for some emergency occasion.
- If you have a nitro kit installed your Power is inflated. Be careful before starting a race as your Power may not actually match the Power of your opponent.
